Telluride’s The New Community Coalition: green building tour

Hab office Habitat for Humanity is known worldwide for homes for low-income families built with volunteer labor. Now the nonprofit has upped its standards.

The first cluster of home projects out of the Telluride chapter of Habitat for Humanity, a three bedroom residence in Norwood, was put up in accordance with  green residential guidelines by Energy Star.

The results of complying with those standards will be on display at The New Community Coalition's, Governor's Energy Office, Energy Star, and Green Building Tour, Thursday, September 17, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.

“This is a great opportunity for builders, realtors, teachers, officials and neighbors to witness how easy increasing energy savings and trimming your carbon footprint can be,” says Kim Wheels, TNCC energy specialist.

The meeting place for the adventure is 1520 Naturita Street, located near Clark’s Market in downtown Norwood. The second stop of the tour will showcase the recently completed Bus Barn, built to LEED certified standards.

The Green Building Tour aims to highlight Value Engineering Framing Techniques, aspects of insulation, GEO exchange, HVAC system, LEED and Energy Star standards.

Lunch specials and conversation afterward at Happy Belly Deli.
